Remember to stick with the classic designs. Remember that a colored chandelier will become dated in another 5-10 years. Match the chandelier to the room and the mood you wish to feel rather than with the times.
When choosing a chandelier for a particular room you need to first measure the width and length of the room. Add these two measurements and the resultant sum (in inches) is how wide your chandelier should be. For instance if your room is 14 feet wide by 16 feet long you need to add these two numbers which gives you 30. Thus the ideal width for a chandelier for this room will be 30 inches. However you also need to consider the height at which the chandelier will hang. If you have low ceilings and the chandelier will hang quite low you should buy a slightly smaller one (26-28 inches). But if you have really high ceilings then you should go in for a bigger one (34-36 inches). This is because the higher the chandelier the smaller it is going to appear.
You can use a chandelier in almost any room since there are countless styles from which to choose from. For example the Schonbek crystal chandeliers or others dating back to the 16th century are ageless and enduring. These fixtures have withstood the test of time. Since then many other styles have evolved and are equally as impressive. Most modern fixture designs manage to offer both a nod to the past while fitting seamlessly into the decors and designs of present-day.
Victorian Chandeliers - You do not have to live in a Victorian mansion to add crystal or glass-drop chandeliers. In fact if you have a formal dining area or baby grand piano you can use a crystal chandelier for that area. If you have gracefully legged chairs and tables in your living area crystal chandeliers can also fit. If you decorate in chintz and floral patterns glass-drop chandeliers can offer the same feel as crystal without being quite as formal.

Bead-shell chandeliers are popular contemporary chandelier fixtures designed from beads and shells. The most common type of shell used for such chandelier pieces is the Capiz shell which is commonly referred to as mother-of-pearl shell. Bead-shell chandeliers often emit soft lights which makes them more preferable to be used in fine dining restaurants. They are also commonly fixated near pictures and paintings to highlight these interior elements.
